San Francisco - A suit against the State of California for 8600 alleged to be due under the act of 1891 which fixed a bounty on coyote scalps, is on trial here. The suit was commenced by Julia H. Jones, to whom the claims sued on were assigned. The coyotes were killed in Modoc county in 1893 and 1894, and certificates for the scalps were issued by the Hoard of Supervisors of that county. Many of the certificates were issued.
